. I guess this is where I am suppose to write something completely witty, funny, and interesting to entice you into staying and taking a look around. Um --- what to say, what to say? As a writer you’d think words would come really easily wouldn’t you? Wrong! I think one of the biggest challenges, as a writer is to write about yourself – give me fictional characters any day! Well here goes….

“The Family Affair” is my breakout novel, and I am very proud to present it to you, the world at large. Although I have been writing most of my life in some capacity, it’s only been 6 years since I have being concentrating on it professionally. I have published freelance articles in the Health and Wellness Magazine Synchronicity (circulation 200 000).   I am current member of The Writers Guild, and various related writing organizations. 

I graduated college, majoring in fashion and communication about a 100 years ago (seems like that anyways). In the past my career path has been varied. I have worked for a major worldwide fashion/beauty corporation specializing in development and execution of programs designed to enhance and propel individuals personal strengths; giving them the opportunity to excel in their current position and the tools to diversify their skills and talents. I love the diversity and the energy of the fashion industry --- oh and the GLAMOUR!! I have met so many interesting people – or should I call them characters?? During my time in the fashion industry I had the opportunity to travel, and work worldwide – an amazing experience in itself.

Some of my current hobbies include surfing (which is challenging since I don’t live near an ocean), long distant running, and traveling. I also am a strong believer in giving back to the community you live in. I do my part by assisting the local organization(s) whose focus is meeting the basic needs of food, shelter, and clothing for the growing homeless population in my city.

My next/current project remains without a title at this time, even thou it is over halfway completed. Check it out under the “preview” section of my website. It has a completely different feel to it than “The Family Affair”, which excites me.

Well that’s all you get for now; if you’d like to know more about me (ex: my Astrology sign, shoe size, etc) you’ll need to buy me dinner.
